June is almost here! Have you made your concert plans?

Plans. Plans. Plans. We need them. What concerts will you plan for in June? Lots to choose from, almost too many. So let’s narrow the list down.

Regardless, all of your choices WILL be rewarding. Enjoy!

Top 20 Concerts for June

Coldplay w/SHAED @ FedEx Field (6/1/22) (Pro Tip: FedEx Field is no picnic to travel to or from, but local favorites SHAED are also playing! And some $20 tickets were released. Because this is a Wednesday. At FedEx.)

Broods w/Ella Vos @ Howard Theatre (6/2/22) (Pro Tip: Two great artists for the price of one.
